All attorneys are not created equal—experience counts. If a workplace injury is serious enough to require time off work and medical attention, or if the injury may cause long-term consequences to your health, you need an experienced New Jersey worker’s compensation lawyer. Not all attorneys understand how to effectively navigate the workers’ compensation system.

An adverse decision from your employer, your employer’s insurance company, or workers’ compensation, does not mean your case is closed. Seek help from an experienced team of workers’ compensation attorneys who know and understand how to handle claim denials and who can determine the reason for the denial so that evidence can be gathered in order to overturn the denial. A knowledgeable workers’ compensation attorney understands what is needed to adequately demonstrate that an injury or disability is directly related to a workplace injury.

Even if your workers’ compensation claim is approved, you may not agree with the type, amount, and duration of the benefits or you might have problems collecting benefits. If you are not happy with the benefits you have been offered, you may dispute the claim. In order to ensure that you get everything to which you are entitled, it is important to have a skilled team of workers’ compensation experts in your corner.

You are not stuck with an attorney who is not working diligently on your case. If you do not feel that your attorney is making you a priority, you have the option to retain new counsel. Doing so will not have an adverse effect on your case. In fact, seeking representation from a more experienced, more motivated attorney, could likely result in a better conclusion to your case.

The process of applying for workers’ compensation benefits, disputing your benefit claim, or dealing with the insurance companies can be overwhelming. A New Jersey work injury lawyer who is knowledgeable and who understands how to work through the system can be a real asset to your case.
